3:00 pm
you hear from the president and his men and his women no negotiation. his way or the highway. they're the ones who are unwilling to compromise on any fast set of obama care. >> it comes back worse and worse and worse. >> my hope would be the president would reconsider his sdegs too sit on the side lines and be a mere spectator. >> it is our responsibility to fund the government of the united states. we should not allow anyone to
3:01 pm
extract a rapsonsom to do our j. >> good afternoon. we're still not clear what it will take to reopen the government and now from the looks of things, it seems like one crisis may bleed in on the other. we're just 1 d1 days from crashg through the at the time ceiling. >> i told the president there is no way we'll pass when the votes are not in the house to pass a clean debt limit. >> senator ted cruz use the debt ceiling as his next bargaining chip? >> it has been the best leverage that congress has to rein in the executives. >> plus captured alive. u.s. commandos launched twin terror raid this is weekend arresting one of the world's most wanted men. >> members of al qaeda and other terrorist organizations literally can run but they can't hide. >> and no options. the states that refuse to expand medication are leavings americah
3:02 pm
insurance. and miley cyrus bringing the circus to the snl stage. find out who survived. lots to get to, but we start with day six of the government shutdown and today the talk was all about nearing the debt ceiling deadline. the white house took advantage of the sunday talk show circuit with treasury secretary jack lew who appeared on four of the sunday shows. republicans countered with house speaker john boehner. let's get right to the brain trust. julie pace, white house correspondent, bob hurder, and zachary caravelle, columnist from reuters. between to see you. julie, john boehner laying blame for a potential debt limit crisis squarely at the feet of president obama. take a listen. >> the nation's credit is at risk because of the administration's refusal to sit down and have a conversation. >> they're saying it's at risk
3:03 pm
because of your refusal to pass a clean debt limit. >> we are not going to pass a clean debt limit increase. >> under no circumstances? >> i told the president the votes are not in the house to pass a clean debt limit and the president is risking default by not having a conversation with us. >> julia sat down with president obama for an interview friday night. did you sense any signs of him softening? >> no, not at all. and it really is striking just how far apart the president and john boehner are at this point. the conversation that they're having now about the debt ceiling now is very similar to the conversation that they have been having about the government shut up to o shutdown where the president says these are two things, that congress simply has to do alone. john boehner acting at the behest of a lot of the conservative members of his caucus say, hey, let's use both as opportunities to extract some kind of concession from the
3:04 pm
president, whether it's on health care, whether it's on spending of the deficit. >> bob, default more or less likely than it was a week ago? >> i never thought that default was likely. i think it's possible, but i don't think it's likely. what i think is interesting is the way this thing is being played out. and it's going further from a lot of republicans ever wanted to. the real issue, the republicans haven't had any cards to play. obama care has been passed by both houses of congress, signed bee the president and upheld by the supreme court. so negotiate over what? >> jack lew defended the administration on all the major networks this morning. this is a bit of what he said. take a listen. >> the failure of congress to act would for the first time put us in a place where we're defaulting on our obligations as a go.
3:05 pm
it is irresponsible and reckless to take that chance. there are no good choices if we run out of borrowing capacity. the first time since 1979, the united states would not be paying its bills. >> your take is a bit unique. is he crying wolf there or not so much? what happens to the economy if there is no agreement by october 17th? >> the reality is we don't know that he's crying wolf because none of us know what would happen on october 18th if we don't know what we're supposed to do before then. do i think that the ratcheting of the rhetoric of doom, the debt-apocalypse that it allows each camp to dig in saying the stakes will be huge. so you are creating a crisis about 11 days from now. and i don't think anything will happen frankly only late the
3:06 pm
week after columbus day because you have two camps saying we won't move, we don't need to move and the stakes are so high that we're not going to negotiate about them. i don't know that that's going to happen. but i do know that it certainly suits the political purposes toto toen think that it will. >> this is senator cruz on cnn this morning. he talked about once again trying to tie defunding obama care to the debt ceiling negotiations. take a listen. >> we should look for ways to mitigate the harms from obama care. since 1978, we've raised the debt ceiling 55 times. a majority of those times, 28 times, congress has attached very specific and stringent requirements so the president's demand jack up the nation's credit card with no limits, no constraints, it's not a reasonable demand. >> possible, bob, is that a reasonable case for negotiation on the debt limit? >> no.
3:07 pm
you could have an argue or discussion over any number of issues. the assumption is that. >> there is something one side or the other could give on and some sxro hiz could be reached. the republicans are the ones who have determined that obama care is the issue at hand. i cannot imagine what are the democrats going to negotiate on obama care? to what extent will they pull back on this program that's already under way? >> and arguably to what extent should they have thoo puhave to. >> you're not going to delay the implementation because it's been implemented. they will reopen negotiations. a whole series of things could now be open for negotiation. there is a fairness to saying the debt ceiling has been an occasion for having those debates. >> but there are still two issues.
3:08 pm
one is the issue of the shut down oifgt governmeoig of the government which is under way already. and the other is whether or not to raise debt limit. there should not be a fight over the shutdown of the government. a clean resolution should pass and if you want to have discussions about the debt ceiling, that's a different matter. >> julia, what did the president say to you about the tea party specifically, about the handful of folks, minority much the minority of the house, this group of people that is holding the government hostage to a certain september? >> he said it is a reflection of democracy, some real concerns that the american people have. that being said, he thinks that just because you have frustration doesn't mean you come to washington and try to shut everything down. it means you come to washington and you try to work through problems and you try to find solutions, not just say, we're not going to do anything unless we get 100% of what we want. he did have some interesting comments about some of the fresh men republican senators you can
3:09 pm
ted crews oig moenk them, trying to draw comparison to his brief tenure in the senate. he said, look, i wasn't out there courting the media, i wasn't out there trying to shut down the government. and these guys maybe position that they can say the most controversial things, take the most controversial positions and it helps them raise money, but is not necessarily good for running the country. >> stick around, guys. we are also on this sunday afternoon getting more for which about two top secret raids against terrorist targets in africa carried out by u.s. military forces saturday. troops went to shore from tripoli and a senior al qaeda operative was captured. he was believed to have been behind the 1998 attacks on u.s. embassies in tan sa knee i ca t. and kenya. john kerry. >> we hope this makes clear that the united states of america will never stop in its effort to
3:10 pm
hold those accountable who conducts agents of terror and those members of al qaeda and other terrorist organizations literally can run but they can't hide. we will continue to try to bring people to justice in an appropriate way with hopes that ultimately these kinds of activities against everybody in the world will stop. >> david rude is with us. how pornd was his capture? >> it easeems like he was tryin to set up a new al qaeda base. he had a $5 million bounty on his head and this is what the u.s. feared, that they're moving in to north africa where there are these weak governments and setting up new al qaeda bases. >> and something rare for our military and special force, he was captured alive. >> yes. >> how useful is that going to be? >> it could be very useful in
3:11 pm
terms of depending on how active he is with al qaeda and these new groups of al qaeda that are emerging possibly in libya and across north africa. this was a delta force raid. three vehicles moved up to his vehicle as he was parking and returning to his home after morning prayers. they smashed the windows of his vehicle, grabbed the gun and just smashed him away. very risky frankly. >> like something out of a pof . >> yes, and it working. so somalia not worked. >> the group believed to be responsible for the deadly attack at that mall in nairobi. what happened in that raid? >> that was navy s.e.a.l.s. they swam ashore, they were going at one house where there was suspect, possibly a leader attacked in the kenya attacked. they encountered more resistance than expected. a firefight for 15 or 20 minutes and they swarm away. p hours said about an hour. helicopters were called in to support them, but they have
3:12 pm
admitted they did that get their arrest get. >> can we expect any repercussions from either of those missions? >> the real concern is more in libya. there have been statements by libyan moderates saying they assume the raid, they don't want terrorists in their country. but the government there is very weak and they're afraid that al qaeda will retaliate against the libyan government or there will be retaliation against u.s. embassy in tripoli. >> what does this lead fuss this global war on terror? >> you'll see more special forces raids. he must have been a big fish to try to capture him alive. so there was something more important about him. but we'll see more and more of these raids, more drone strike and more attacks as well. >> always appreciate your insights. thank you so much for coming in. up next, following through the cracks of obama care. even with the new law, millions still do not have access to

3:16 pm
let's get right to the top headline this is hour. protests in egypt have left 24 people dead and more than 90 others hurt. police in egypt's capital used tear gas geagainst supporters o morsi. they were trying to march toward tahrir square in a celebration commemorating the war with israeli. meanwhile back here in new york, 35-year-old robert si echlsiese
3:17 pm
arraigned and charged on saturday. according to law enforcement officials, the driver of the suv is not expected to face charges. he is, however, expected to testify before a grand jury in the coming weeks. meanwhile police are investigating the presence of police officers who may have been among the pack of rioters that day. one of those officers law enforcement sources say worked in a deep undercover sensitive role for thenypd and the other officers may not have known who he was. the effort to extend health care care to millions of americans is currently under way. but it leaves out scores of people that the program was designed to help. 26 states have rejected medicaid expansion. that means two-thirds of african-americans and single mothers who currently do not
3:18 pm
have insurance will remain without insurance. one state hit especially hard, mississippi. which has the largest percentage of poor and uninsured people in this country. in that state, more than 90,000 african americans are being denied coverage. dr. shirley heads up the jackson medical mall foundation which provides health care for the underserved. doctor, the "new york times" talked to a 53-year-old unemployed mississippi man named we willie charles carter. he makes less than $3,000 a year but does not qualify for medicaid in mississippi because he has no dependent children. he told the times, you've got to be almost dead before you can get medicaid in mississippi. dr. sher irley, how is that possible? >> mississippi has a very restrictive bare bones medicaid program. and the only way currently
3:19 pm
without the expansion and withouted adoption of the polics in the health care reform, then therefore the only way you can be on medicaid in mississippi is, first of all, you have to be poor. and then if you are a male and you are anywhere between 19 and 64 it doesn't matter your income or health condition unless you're totally disabled, you cannot qualify for medicaid. for instance, if you are 19 and under and your family is poor, then the children in that family under age 19 are eligible for medicare. but if a female is in that family age 19 or older, if that female, only way that fee maim who is over 19 is eligible is
3:20 pm
that they become pregnant and they're eligible through the pregnancy and the subsequent children are eligible for medicaid. but once that -- yes. >> i want to take a moment quickly to look the at specifically the racial component to this because the newspapers here are absolutely staggering. black women today in mississippi earn less than the average american in 1960. black men today in mississippi have a shorter life expectancy than the average american had more than 50 years ago. how does this lack of medicaid expansion hit the black community compared to the white community in mississippi? >> well, i'm glad you brought that up. medicaid expansion as proposed would allow for an additional close to 300,000 adults to be covered for medicaid. about a little more than a third of those kids would be white.
3:21 pm
and i'm glad you raised the issue of race because the politicians in mississippi have historically used race to convince low income whites to vote and take positions against their own interests. for instance the proposed medicaid expansion, i think the news media does a does his service because once you paint medicaid expansion black, it their fears. but the politicians can prey on it and play on it as if it is a benefit only for blacks at the expense of whites. and historically during my lifetime, the politics of race in mississippi carries the day.
3:22 pm
so if we could just getting across the fact that the "new york times" article has pictures of brown people being adversely affected by the nonexpansion, but there are white people who are also affected negatively by the nonexpansion. and if we could just get the message across that this is not solely a benefit for blacks, but it also is a benefit for whites who are voting and taking positions against their owe interests because they position that blacks benefit at their expense. >> dr. shirley, thank you so much for your time on this sunday afternoon. i do appreciate your insight. >> you're welcome. a secret plea. a secret plea from the weatherman. take a look at this. national weather service employee working without pay because of the government shutdown hidden in this message in an early morning forecast for

3:34 pm
vote. i'm talking to sources within speaker boehner's office and they say the typing is now different and here's why. we are so close to the debt limit issue which is coming up on october 17th, that's the last date where the treasury department says that the government can continue to borrow and pay its bills and so forth. and because democrats have also insisting that that be raised without anything else attached to it, that that changes the dynamics. so some of those republicans who have said publicly that they would support a vote today to reopen the government might not do that given the fact the democrats are saying they would not deal when it comes to the debt ceiling. so that's complicated, i know. but that's the nature of public statements versus actual votes. so we don't really know. now, speaker boehner is in a position where he doesn't want to bring that vote and have it not pass or bring that vote and have its pa and then weaken his position for the debt ceiling. so bringing that vote is so unlikely at this point because republicans who do run the house
3:35 pm
have the opportunity to decide what is called for and what is not in terms of votes. so it's really battle over public attempts versus the strategy of how they get out of the larger problem here which is not just government shutdown, but what to do about debt ceiling. >> kelly o'donnell from capitol hill for us. >> did that make any sense to you? >> it always makes sense when you explain it. >> it's lonely up here on a sunday. not a sole around, my friend. >> thank you so much. getting families of inmates out of the shadows. that's today's big idea. in 200010, 2.7 million kids had a parent behind bars. in fact a majority of inmates are parents of young children. today one group is taking a holistic approach to helping former inmates re-enter society. they're helping out their kids to especially getting them through school. fred patrick helps run the vera institute for justice, he's live here with me for today's big idea. in the simplest of terms, how
3:36 pm
exactly does your group help these former inmates and their families? >> so we want to promote pathways from prison, essentially it's partnerships between colleges, universities and the correctional system. so we provide college education programs in prison for inmates who are nearing release with a focus on follow-through two years post release with the wrap around support in terms of family support services, sub tap difference ser bus services, other things they may need including housing. so when you look at all the data, to suggest that increasingly individuals needed indication to get the type of employment in order to get the jobs that are available out there, and so that is the way in which we feel we'll be able to strength then families and communities. >> how many inmates have we helped so far? >> the program started in summer of 2012 is when we released the request for proposals to several states. and the program kicked off in terms of the educational services in new jersey this past general and in north carolina

3:42 pm
of linsanity. and director of wedding palace. christine, let me start with you. you cite this figure on your film's website, that he had withing palace is the first asian american movie to hit theaters in more than a decade. what it ook took so long? >> good question. i think it's a challenge for asian americans to get our image as on screen. but this movie is not just an asian american film.images as o. but this movie is not just an asian american film. on screen. but this movie is not just an asian american film. on screen. but this movie is not just an asian american film.on screen. but this movie is not just an asian american film. two of my main collaborate tors are also african american. we have a lot of diversity involved. so even though it may look asian american, this is a movie for all people. >> sure. brian, your film hit theater this is weekend. it has been pretty well received by the critics so far. how did that propject come abou? >> we pitched jeremy back in
3:43 pm
harvard when he was still at the university about the idea of doing a web series with him. and this was before linsanity was even a word. he was hez tant at first. we thought it was a really interesting story because he was already making some noise at that level in the university ranks. and ultimately when he got to the nba, with golden state, he finally agreed to do it with us and we started shooting very simple shoestring budget idea that turned on its head last february. >> you bet on the right horse. >> well, yeah. i guess we did. >> that documentary shows how jeremy dealt with some of the racial slurs that he encountered during that rise to stardom. not to give away too much about the documentary, but what else did it you discover about jeremy lin? >> well, we always say that jeremy is probably the most extraordinary ordinary person you'll ever meet. by that what i mean is jeremy is
3:44 pm
like your average boy next goor. key have been in your chemistry class, in your choir, on your chess club. he was involved with so many different things growing up. and you look at him and he doesn't look like one of the best basketball players on earth. he just looks like someone who like i said, was your brother or cousin or just the kid serving you sandwiches at itit togs off the. but he picks up a basketball and magic happens. so getting to know him was coold magic happens. so getting to know him was cool. he's as humble as can be. >> your movie is about someone pushed to get marriage. which is universal. what if anything about his story is uniquely asian american?
3:45 pm
or is there? >> well, i try to highlight different aspects of korean culture. you'll see a first birthday scene. but really at the same time, i'm inspired by filmmakers like woody allen who really try to take a very uniquely jewish manhattan experience and make it for all people. and that's what we really try to bring forth with wedding palace just through some funny comedy, try to make it as universal as possible. >> what was the toughest part? >> raising the money, getting it out there. >> how much does something like this cost, if you don't mind me asking? or do you mind me asking? >> put this way, if we would have had to have paid for everything, it probably would have been in the neighborhood of about maybe $3 million. >> and you were able to raise that money on your own? >> yes. it was a lot of cooperation and support really from the los angeles korea town business
3:46 pm
community. this film would not have been made without the korea american community support and now getting it out to theaters. doct >> brew ian, how it did you rai the money? >> we had a shoestring budget with in-investigation tore, but once in-shanty hit, our bills escalated and we went out and raised through kick starter which is great. and two fold kick starter obviously the money is important. but secondly, if not the even equally important is you're building your initial fan base. because people who support through kick starter, they're telling people, hey, look, i supported this cause, check out this movie and they feel like they have a piece of the film with them. so once we went live at sun dance in january, they were so receptive to turning that around

and pushing it through their social network. so the buzz has been building. it's really palpable and this weekend, we've been doing pretty well from the early returns that i can see. so hats off to kick starter. >> christine, brian, both filmmakers we are probably be seeing and hearing a lot more of in the future. thank you for spending some of your sunday with us. hint of a time line from former secretary of state hillary clinton on a possible presidential run on friday according to news day, clinton telling a group of long island business leaders, quote, he am not going to begin to think seriously about it until sometime next year. i will think about it because it's something that is a o. a lot of people's minds and it's on my mind, as well. huh...fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that.
3:48 pm
well, did you know the ancient pyramids were actually a mistake? uh-oh. geico. fifteen minutes could save you...well, you know. and you're not very proud of that. but tonight he made pizza... ...with johnsonville italian sausage. and everybody loved it. and you're definitely proud of that. johnsonville. served with pride since 1945. i have a great fit with my dentures. i love kiwis. i've always had that issue with the seeds getting under my denture.

the brain trust is back. julie pace, white house correspondent for the associated press. bob herbert, distinguished -- not just a fellow. a distinguished senior fellow at the progressive think tank and advocacy group. zachary carabell, distinguished columnist -- not so much. for reuters. >> tough crowd. >> julie, let me start with you. in your interview with president obama you asked the president about the controversy over the name of washington's pro football team. this is his response. >> i've got to say if i were the owner of the team, and i knew that there was a name of my team, if it had a storied history that was offending a sizable group of people, i'd think about changing it. >> the team name, of course, that question itself generated a lot of talk and front page news as well. front page of the "washington post" today. what led you to ask president obama about the name of washington's football team?
3:52 pm
>> so i'm a big sports fan. the president is a big sports fan. but a big part of the reason that i asked him this question is that throughout his presidency, he's actually made it a real priority to try to increase the focus on native americans. every year he holds this tribal summit in washington. it's actually coming up next month. he's had hhs involved with having health care programs designed specifically for native americans. so i wanted to see how he would try to balance his focus on trying to, you know, improve conditions for native americans with his history as a pretty avid sports fan. >> okay. bob, here's the thing. some people have said, you know, they're picking at the redskins. that name. you've got the black hawks. you've got the indians. you've got the braves. there are a number of other team names associated with native americans. what's different about this one? >> redskins is a slur. black hawks is not a slur. braves is is not a slur. redskins is not a term that
3:53 pm
any -- that most people want to use when you're talking about native americans. i think that the washington nickname is more egregious than some of the other ones. >> let's turn back to the government shutdown before we get out of here. last week we saw headlines all over the world. we want to show a few of them to you here. nothing works in the usa. that's one of the headlines. a few other headlines from all over the globe. how embarrassing, zachary carabell, how embarrassing has the shutdown been for the united states and has it done any real damage to our standing globally? >> look, this has been a five-year period of if not actual ig anymorety than actually declining perception of the united states. some which has to do with a changing global balance. relatively the role of the united states globally is likely to be less prominent or less prepond rent. that is not a bad thing. the other side of it is whenever
3:54 pm
there's bad news in a country that attracts a lot of attention, you're going to attract a lot of people that like to hate. we like to joke about italian politics. in the past two weeks, italian politics -- we make italian politics look fairly healthy. something i never thought i would be saying. so, yes, it is embarrassing. i think that is clearly not the most important factor of what's going on right now. >> let's take a look at headlines next week. julie, what's your headline? what are we talking about a week from now? >> look, i kind of wish for all those government employees out there that this wasn't the case. but i think we are probably going to still be in the government shutdown. i think you're going to start to see that debate merge more closely with the debt ceiling as the days go on. >> sneak peek, bob herbert? >> i agree. i think the headline will be shutdown fight shifts. what will happen is there will be this merger with the raising of the debt ceiling. then you'll see a willingness on the democrats, more of a willingness to negotiate because they'll be negotiating on issues
3:55 pm
separate and apart from obama care. >> your headline was "gop starts to buckle." "gop buckles" was your headline. >> i'm changing my mind. >> we didn't let our graphics department know that. >> i think we're going to begin to see a shift in what's going on here. because i do think that the two issues are going to merge. >> zachary karabell? i want to make sure your headline is the same headline you submitted earlier. >> it is the same headline, yes. although it's funny that all three of us without any consultation have essentially the same headline. i.e. that the continuing resolution, funding of the government bleeds into the debt ceiling. i was going to suggest that, in fact, you're not going to have a government reopened before columbus day. this is going to get worse for the dell ceiling. it's clearly a conventional wisdom that is emerging. it may be a conventional wisdom that is correct. there's very little attempt to negotiate. there's very little attempt to get out of intrenched positions. i don't think the markets need this.
3:56 pm
i think you'll have a calm market week. >> if that happens, we will break our government shutdown record, then. >> yeah. which i guess is 17 days. >> 23 days. >> then we'll get near it. >> the thing you have to worry about, though, is for some unforeseen development to come up. you know, some problem in the stock market. some company gets in trouble. i mean, you know, we're in -- it's a precarious situation. >> zachary karabell, big thanks. bob herbert, thank you so much. julie pace from the a.p. thank you so much. do appreciate your time. thank you for sharing that interview with the president with us as well. >> absolutely. thanks for having me. >> that is going to wrap it up for this sunday afternoon. i'll be back next weekend, 2:00 eastern. i'll see you again on sunday at 3:00 eastern. have a fantastic sunday evening. up next on the other side of this break, "disrupt" with karen finney. to prove febreze eliminates tough odors, we threw a party.
